House signed a two-year, $8.5M deal last offseason after Harden took less money to give the Sixers extra roster flexibility. In his first with the Sixers, House averaged 4.8 points on 47.2% shooting, 33.6% from behind the arc.
The swingman’s best performance came in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals vs. Boston, where he scored 10 points on 5-7 shooting in 15 minutes.
With new head coach Nick Nurse relying on athletic wings during his time in Toronto, it’ll be interesting to see how he deploys House in his system.
